Testing varies from school 2 school it is up 2 your Sensei when u test.Ranks are very much an american thing we as americans need 2 c that we are progressing a student in japan would never think of such things.Aikidoka in japan are happy 2 train on the same technique for months on end which explains why the japanese have such excellent technique.I have seen yonkyus who were much more adept at aikido than some shodans.So just keep up your training and the day will come when your Sensei tells u it is your time.
Oh, okay. I think i'll have to ask some senior students at my dojo more about testing thank you for the advice!
